Say it loud I'm black and I'm proud Come on, come on, come on, come on Say it loud We made men in this world, digging for bones The untraceable ones come with no clones A hundred years from now y'all can still get this bomb On the Brand Nubian dot com My name should be mentioned with the Portier, not the Gualtier Although it smell good, I still get mad at Rosewood A Nubian card member since that faithful December In the eighty years, from tears to cheers, things we did should be listed In a pyramid, studied by a little kid Talked about by old jacks with slacks Can I move the black is my first and foremost Can I get a little land for me and mine? Grow vegetables, maybe make a little wine Build with the Gods and the bright sunshine Before we save others we gotta save our own kind [Chorus] I'm black and I'm proud Say it loud I'm black and I'm proud Say it loud I'm black and I'm proud Say it loud I'm black and I'm proud Say it loud Now did you know it was you who was first to walk the Earth Gave birth to the Universe, uh Afflicted with the curse of the slave Predicted to inherit the earth in the last days Now as we take you home, what we make our own It's written in stone like Commandments Read them every now and then or when you get the chance Catch a glance through the power lens, see if you could see us advance G-O-D in the dance, reporting freelance Fought for a chance, got you hanging by the seat of your pants Our immediate stance when we came to the game Was completely advanced so no one sounds the same Seven and one-half ounces of brain When we around make sure you bow down to the king Brand Nubian style is how we do our thing So if you feel good, real good Scream it out loud if you black and you proud [Chorus] Feel me now, check my style A brother's resume run longer than the Nile Justice cipher born to teach man, woman and child In the land of the lost where my people went foul Do the knowledge, black, look at the way that we act Smoking crack or each other with the gat The only race of people who kill self like that I deal with actual facts to keep my mind on track I love y'all that's why I say these things Watch me transform chickenheads to queens Rhymes full of protein like rice and beans Brand Nubian cats here to change all that The maker, the owner, the cream of the Earth Proud to be black because the black man's first My flow frequency is at a million megahertz So when I spit my verbals I'm heard around the Universe (Yeah, yeah, yeah) So don't front, say it loud, I'm black and I'm proud [Chorus]

[Lyrics Brand Nubian - Don't Let It Go to Your Head] Now a lot of people think this is easy as it looks Books and books of rhyme concepts and hooks Session to session to get thoughts manifested Stressin' and stressin' to hit the world with a blessin' Lot of people often ask, Puba how you givin' back? The way I give back is through the knowledge of my raps like a gem, for all my people caught out on a limb who be givin' in, caught out on a stem, who don't want to win I'm feelin' you I know you gettin' down like that but what I'm sayin' Dog is let me hold a little somethin' black! I'll hit you back! come on dead that, that's the tenth time I heard that -- all you know is gimme I work hard for every penny that I make -- video and tape LP and CD, if I fall, you feedin' me? No dough to spread, always keep a level head Long as my seeds get fed, it won't go to my head, so.. Don't let it go your head, no! Everybody love a star, when he on top Don't don't let it go your head, no! Nobody comes around when the star start to drop Don't let it go your head, no! Strive to help others who help themselves Don't let it go your head, no no no no no! Knowledge of self, and good health and wealth The ladies are datin', no question but you can't tell her that 'Cause subconciously, we put our hand out Like I'm that ATM cat, drop me off at Chase Earring in the navel like you sex-you-al Royalty, while the whole loyalty means [shit] Get wreck in the kitchen like she were on the cooking channel and didn't have a [nigga] in the car do' Got ??? she's a mother to be, I hope they're twins Give me a whole tribe and be as sexy as Janet was on the cover of Vibe She slick talk, playin' you well she got a girlfriend that used to tap back when, so she always worryin' with you Tell her hold it down ma, I give you high ranks Sometimes you wild but I guess that's your style If you lay up in my high rise, will you stay wise? Will the slave thighs open your eyes, girl.. Don't let it go your head, no! Don't believe those jealous type cats Don't don't let it go your head, no! Cause I'm the one makin' some late night cash Don't let it go your head, no! I told you girl my home is my castle Don't let it go your head, no no no no no! Understand it won't be no hassle I heard your single on the battle of the beats It won five nights, I bet you had the time of your life Workin' so hard, and so long, to make a record Finally to make a song people respected Collect the dough at a show as you sip the Mo' Now you hittin' the flo', you never hit befo' Got you trippin', how much better could it get? Got the leather with the work check, all up in the whip They're all legitimate, callin' it what it's really not This is just one single you got, that's really hot Tomorrow it could bust just like a blood clot Leave you in the dust with your body to rot Another party to rock, if it's you or if it's me it doesn't matter cause it just won't stop Don't let your gray matter pop 'Cause when you release the album If they don't cop, you gonna get dropped, so.. Don't let it go your head, no! 'Cause one single don't make you a hit Don't don't let it go your head, no! Stay true to who you are don't never forget Don't let it go your head, no! Keep your feet on solid ground Don't let it go your head, no no no no no! 'Cause what goes up, must come down, uhh Don't let it go your head, no! Don't don't let it go your head, no! Don't let it go your head, no! Don't let it go your head, no no no no no!

[Lord Jamar] Young black male, twenty-five years of age Many-a-lives didn't survive to this stage Cause the rage of another brother got him popped Shot him and he dropped, like a beanbag Mean motherfucker with a rag and some jeans that sag They signify your death by crossin out your tag Then they go and brag that they took another life Never to think, do a brother got a mother and a wife? Trife when a nigga do the work of the Klan That's what you're doin when you ruin the life of a black man Attack plan on self The man's got the family jewels, so I guess we're buryin wealth All because we've been taught to despise what's black Open your eyes you oughta realize the fact That you've been gettin used like a trick You think you're mighty, but yo, whitey got your head sick See you were fed thick pieces of swine as a baby It only help to drive your mind crazy Now your blind days be over No more standin on line, tryin to find Jehovah Let us rewind to a time we was right and just Nowadays we just fight and bust One another in the back over crack, a carjack Will get you killed, watch the blood get spilled To the scale, then watch how fast they build the jail Now they got you holdin on to a cell, well...

I just came to chill Came to see the flicks, nuttin more nuttin less Try to show love even on a bad day I roll up, I'm never hold up, the L is swoll up The beef in the mind is definitely a winner Oh that's that rappin nigga, I thought he was much bigger Do you know this girl named nah B I don't know nothin Did that name-game shit right from the go get Shorty want an autograph, can I sign it at the end Oh I think I'm all of that now, so now it's fuck Brand Nubian Should I call you a bitch, or should I maintain? I'm just here with my lady, and you came witcha man This would force him to front, and I'm sure he don't want it Over some old bullshit, when I'm quick to pull shit Live dad, everything is everything I got a lotta shit to do I can't afford to catch a charge I'm a product of the streets, and I couldn't make no peace All the real hard shit I know, is on the down low Straight for real estate, on a scale I place your fate Now I'mma let you skate, you was a little weeded And I seen you don't need it So hold on with your bad self... [Starr] I'll keep, holdin on I'll keep, holdin on!! I gotta hold on! I'll keep, holdin on My word is bond, I gotta be strong I'll keep, holdin on!! And keep holdin on, yeah Ya see life's gettin rough but I gotta hold on All these little suckers want me alone Yeah, yeah, yeahhh!!

Album: Brand Nubian - Time's Running Out Year: 1998 Lyrics: [Lord Jamar] A child is born with no state of mind Blind to the ways of mankind God is smilin on you but he's frownin too Because only God knows what you go through, uh A child is born with no state of mind Blind to the ways of mankind God is smilin on you but he's frownin too [Sadat X] He grew up in an instant, the fourth of seven children The oldest male, on the block that's half and half Brown stones to neck bones, crack jones to tones Where young girls spread out and drop seeds like they farmers They old as they mommas and the same age as they aunt and the neighborhood drunk man and that lady with the dreaded disease, is like hard to please And the house of ill fate with the metal gate Keep the thin people cracked out like crunch they munch The old man with the fruit stand, is on his knee and his hand, his old heart, just can't stand the CPR As they load him in the back of a car I'm on a world tour to help free the poor From the local drug cats to kids in front of the store Number runners, gang bangers and the fake money spenders Reality check rings as we descend from the kings [Grand Puba] Now a child is born with no state of mind Blind to the ways of mankind God's smilin on you but he's frownin too Cause only God knows what you'll go through A child is born with no state of mind Blind to the ways of mankind God's smilin on you but he's frownin too Cause only God knows [Lord Jamar] No hope, was scopin horror in my horoscope Tomorrow I could be broke, this ain't a joke I'm twenty dollars away, from bein dead ass I'm 'bout to spend half, on a bag to get my head blast Last week I lost the Justice Cypher Born That spawned a rift with my Wis, now she dipped with my kids I live by the subway, niggaz push drugs in my hallway All day everyday, tryin to get the pay And I've been tryin to find a better way It seems when you poor then you forced to endure to raw play Survival be your forte, lookin forward to arrival of your food stamps, projects like boot camps With generals, cookin chemical warfare Peace to Amir, I ain't seen your ass in four years The law bears down on anybody that's brown My complexion, puts me in the direction of the section 8 Rejection seems to be my fate As a kid I wanted shit but momma always used to say I had to wait And its been drama up to date Enough to traumatize people's lives and the eyes that try to fixate [Sadat X] A child is born with no state of mind Blind to the ways of mankind God is smilin on you but he's frownin too Cause only God knows what you'll go through A child is born with no state of mind Blind to the ways of mankind God is smilin on you but he's frownin too Because [Grand Puba] Born into existance, with some resistance A struggle, comin out my ol' Earth's womb It was little past noon, three months before June I had a feelin I was headed toward the land of doom I came out, and the doctor got ready to smack I grabbed the 'bilical cord, and tried to pull myself back but it was too late for that, cause out slid the sack So I guess I gotta maintain where I'm at Now I'm here breathin this new kind of air Poverty bound, headin for the welfare I had a feelin somethin wasn't gonna be right Cause I can feel it in my mom's uptight appetite Now I'm growin up around stale beans and drug fiends and shiesty characters with their harebrained schemes Now momma I don't wanna be poor no more And I'm tired of these crackheads in front of our door [Outro] A child is born with no state of mind Blind to the ways of mankind God is smilin on you but he's frownin too Because only God knows what you'll go through A child is born with no state of mind Blind to the ways of mankind God is smilin on you but he's frownin too Because only God knows what you'll go through

[Lyrics Brand Nubian - Love vs. Hate] [Grand Puba] Uhh.. Now it's love, vs. hate Time for my people to eliminate that hate, let's love Because it's our people that we're thinking of Now they say we playa hatin cause we hate the black on black And the fact we can't stand when we act like that Self-hate killin us more than the Po-Po or crack I tell my peoples with the gats it ain't about all that We arrived on slave ships, tortured chained and whipped Four hundred years of bein slaves in the land of the brave Have we forgotten? Our ancestors forced to pick cotton Women raped and tortured, murdered if they caught ya Niggaz swung from trees like a breeze do summer leaves Swayin back and forth, failed attempts to make it North Millions of people died just so that we can survive So this knowledge I provide cause these facts can't be denied Nowadays it's new ways, sixties it was the smack Eighties it was the crack, nineties it be the gat Time to recognize how uncivilized we got Get wise and unify and not fall victim to the plot Cause it's love, vs. hate Time for my people to eliminate that hate, let's love Because it's our people that we're thinking of It's love, vs. hate It's time for my people to eliminate that hate, let's love Because it's our people that we thinking of [Lord Jamar] Uh, when will we make our Exodus? When will the guns bust the other way instead of at the brother next to us? That's all that they expect from us, police stand by Don't believe the lie that they're the ones protectin us Projects, to see how poverty's affectin us Robberies, we lust objects of high quality or so we think we slowly sink into the quicksand With no support, like a bike that doesn't have a kickstand We stay in court, smoke Newport's, and fail to support our seeds, with no thoughts for they needs We fought for the cheese and all it got us was a grave or a bid as a slave, we live in the land of the brave where the home isn't free, grown niggaz be in a zone, tryin to act out the TV We cracked out and greedy with a lack of respect It's time to come correct, it's time to come correct [Grand Puba] Cause it's love, vs. hate Time for my people to eliminate that hate, let's love Because it's my people that I'm thinking of It's love, vs. hate Time for my people to eliminate that hate, let's love Because it's our people that we thinking of [Sadat X] Sally, been gettin beat for years Husband come home high off of weed and beers He frustrated cause his job is low rate Low money, plus his wife brother act kinda funny My nosey neighbor always makin it her labor to cause controversy, I seen them out in Jersey The teacher say my son show aggression I tell her it's in our lesson, for him to know himself To me the greatest wealth is the best of health When the music stops, I'll play the role like my pops and his pops and so on I got a legacy to go on I'll watch out for my babies and I'll kill for em And if they want to receive the knowledge then I'll build for em Now if it's love vs. hate, then what's your fate? What we showin with the money we blown? Shit is still chaos, ain't a damn thing sewn [Grand Puba] Cause it's love, vs. hate Time for my people to eliminate that hate, let's love Because it's our people that we thinking of It's love, vs. hate Time for my people to eliminate that hate, let's love Because it's our people that we thinking of

Chorus (x2) Verse Two: Lord Jamar, Sadat X Dreadlock, I send a rock from my block Clock wax like crack, samplin from old stacks That's where the soul's at, in this whole rap universe We kick the funky tunes with a burst Sun, moon and star Some boom for Jamar To get me in the flow, now I'm read' to go Set to show, everybody in the party that we're nice Wit out sippin on Bacardi and ice This style flash, Jamar'll be the shining star No matter who you are, no matter who you are I'll rape the tape, drive along in interstate Wit weight, wipe the slate and, mob the gate And by fakin I'll avoid the court date, no legal aid Everything's paid, why cause a tyraid If the money ain't made, talkin millions But spendin penny's and gettin cheap shoes from Kenny's Chorus Verse Three: Lord Jamar, Sadat X Now let's take time out to say peace to the GODs (PEACE) Bust how I release cause this beat is hard We be the squad from raw-taught to rule Take a thought to the top now I drop the jewel I push the Cadillac DeVille and still we real I drive a garbage truck and not give a ........ I need to earn a buck four-a-year I'm thru with buyin wild gear Just somethin I can wear, somethin fly when I'm there Well now we're here to take the gold and the cash for the bill fold I told their ass to chill and they're still cold Frozen cause they're not amongst the chosen one Sun shines like a beacon, similar to how I'm speaking As I receive the mic for the last time, I clear up your past crime All felonies can go, as long as you know Brand Nubian will stand, without the use of a band We always work with a plan Chorus (x2)

[Lyrics Brand Nubian - Maybe One Day] [Featuring Common] [Grand Puba] Yeah, yeah yeah yeah One time as we do it like this, yeah Grand Puba, Common Sense [Common] Yeah, yeah, yeah It's all love y'all (3X) what you say? Intro/Chorus: all, Common [all] Maybe one day we can work it out Strive to understand what life's about All it seems to be is sadness and pain Blood like rain clogs urban drains [Com] When we gonna realize and make the change And take the blame, erase the shame Cause new millennium is knockin at your door The New World Order's what they got in store [Grand Puba] Now I can't stress this enough, life sure is rough You gotta go through a whole lotta shit Just for you to get a little bit Born into existence where your existence is non-existent but your persistence overcomes their resistance Your daily mechanism is your defense, whether it be past or present tense, don't be dense I'm droppin this with Common Sense (true indeed) As we linger on into the darkness Poisoned by society where high-anxiety is just one variety Hatin each other is another, brotha I mean I'm really true to the shit, my spit ain't just spit My duty is to save my people from all of this shit And if I can get somethin for doin that then I'm gon' get And I won't quit My ways and action manifest in my way of thinkin I just can't stand around and do nothin while my people sinkin I told you that I stay true And I gotta do, what I can do, when I can do, so Chorus [Common] Grand Pu...I'ma do....what I gotta do....what I can do It's one for all like Brand Nu-bian, feedin the multitudes Of five loads, dead men walkin with lost souls Some say the games are strange, our ways have been tribal Since the days of Kemet, now displayed on Bennett Revolution's like a pussy, I'm tryin to stay up in it And our music is a message, though some is afraid to send it I don't know much about the New World Order; I know I Got a new daughter, direction and protection I must provide for her The moral of the story I'm building... Like ODB say, We for the children Nike make a killin off us, we kill each other, it kills me to see that You take a life for gold, nigga did you really need that? We try to escape the mixtapes, rims and weed sack And to the new age, they say the women's gonna lead that, so Chorus [Pub] Oh say it ain't so [Com] It ain't so [Pub] My peoples at a all time low [Com] Double oh Pu' [Pub] Nowadays we doin anything for dough [Com] For the dough doe [Pub] Don't you know that knowledge is the note [Com] What? [Pub] Know the ledge, don't hit the edge The negativity pulls us down like gravity [Com] Yup [Pub] Devilish ways and actions poisons us like a cavity [Com] Yessir [Pub] As we send this one throughout our whole proximity [all] Grand Pu' and Common strive to come together [Common] In this era of prepaid calling cards I roll with squads called the Gods Ignorance is at large, struggles in our backyard I slapbox with life and see we wasn't that hard Long as you got God, even got Gramps off lah It's stray lies and bullets directed, to lead the village of lies disconnected like ghetto phones Fuck a search through a magazine for Better Homes It ain't gonna happen Til the devil's gone with the breeze and niggas get off they knees so...

(speak on it God) Preacher got my Old Earth putting money in the pan For the rest of the week, now I'm eating out a soup can He has a home, drives a Caddy through town Has my Old Earth believing that he's coming from the ground (Jesus) Slain are those who fought for what was right Slayed are those who fell victim to the pipe A drug controlled substance, contained in a vial Set up by the devil as he looks and he smiles Good at the game of tricknology But I have knowledge of myself, you're not fooling me You see the answer to me is black unity Unification, to help our bad situation I wrote this on a day of wisdom power All being born to myself (God!) I won't diss the next brother to be paid, that's not my trade It's just the plan that is designed by the colored man Now our babies are born to think this is the way of us (The way of us) That's the way the devil wants it so it is no fuss (It is no fuss) It's just that sad old song, "Self Destruction" To stop our reproduction [Refrain] They put our Wisdom before us (murderer!) That makes it Wisdom, Knowledge (murderer!) But we need Knowledge, Wisdom to bring forth the Understanding (murderer!) Culture, Freedom (murderer!) Power, Refinement (murderer!) Equality, God, Build, Destroy, Borns our Cipher (murderer!) [Pre-Hook] (Can a devil fool a Muslim?) No, not nowadays bro (Do you mean to say the devil fooled us four hundred years ago?) Why Equal Self, a trader made an interpretation Saying that we'd receive more gold for our labor in his nation (Did we receive more gold?) God, Now Cipher It's time to drop the bomb and make the devil pay the piper (True indeed, God, true indeed, God) Why Equal Self (True indeed, God, true indeed, God) Why Equal Self (True indeed, God, true indeed, God) Why Equal Self (True indeed God, true indeed) Why Equal Self [Verse 2: Grand Puba] The solution, knowledge of self to better ourself Cause I know myself, that we can live much better than this Nothing's changed, it's just another sequel The devil's still causing trouble amongst the righteous people Drugs in our community (That ain't right) Can't even get a job (That ain't right) Poisoning our babies (That ain't right) Lying who is God (That ain't right) Well here's some food for thought, many fought for the sport And the black man still comes up short? It's time to motivate, build and elevate Blind, deaf, and dumb, we've gotta change their mind state So I dip dip diver, civilize a 85'er Gotta let him know the devil's a conniver This is the plan from the brother man From the motherland, now it's time to take a stand I keep striving to do my duty to awake 'em To the universal family, I say asalaam alaikum [Outro] Yeah, now I'mma do like this Nuff respects to the brother Jazzy Jay, nuff respect Nuff respects, to my Brand Nubian brothers Bust it, Lord Jamar, God Allah Derek X is on the flex Alamo is good to go Sincere, the God is in here So move on black man, move on We gotta move on black man, move on Move on black man, move on We gotta move on black man, move on Now before I motivate I'mma just say like this Please, educate Allah's children, with equality Move on black man, move on You gotta move on black man, move on

Young black male, twenty-five years of age Many-a-lives didn't survive to this stage 'Cause the rage of another brother got him popped Shot him and he dropped, like a beanbag Mean motherfucker with a rag and some jeans that sag They signify your death by crossin' out your tag Then they go and brag that they took another life Never to think, do a brother got a mother and a wife? Trife when a nigga do the work of the Klan That's what you're doin' when you ruin the life of a black man Attack plan on self The man's got the family jewels, so I guess we're buryin' wealth All because we've been taught to despise what's black Open your eyes you oughta realize the fact That you've been gettin used like a trick You think you're mighty, but yo, whitey got your head sick See you were fed thick pieces of swine as a baby It only help to drive your mind crazy Now your blind days be over No more standin on line, tryin to find Jehovah Let us rewind to a time we was right and just Nowadays we just fight and bust One another in the back over crack, a carjack Will get you killed, watch the blood get spilled To the scale, then watch how fast they build the jail Now they got you holdin' on to a cell, well... I'll keep, holdin' on I'll keep, holdin' on!! I'll keep, holdin' on I'll keep, holdin' on!! Why it gotta be me be ? I just came to chill Came to see the flicks, nuttin' more nuttin' less Try to show love even on a bad day I roll up, I'm never hold up, the L is swoll up The beef in the mind is definitely a winner Oh that's that rappin' nigga, I thought he was much bigger Do you know this girl named nah be I don't know nothin' Did that name-game shit right from the go get Shorty want an autograph, can I sign it at the end Oh I think I'm all of that now, so now it's fuck Brand Nubian Should I call you a bitch, or should I maintain? I'm just here with my lady, and you came witcha man This would force him to front, and I'm sure he don't want it Over some old bullshit, when I'm quick to pull shit Live dad, everything is everything I got a lotta shit to do I can't afford to catch a charge I'm a product of the streets, and I couldn't make no peace All the real hard shit I know, is on the down low Straight for real estate, on a scale I place your fate Now I'ma let you skate, you was a little weeded And I seen you don't need it So hold on with your bad self I'll keep, holdin' on I'll keep, holdin' on!! I gotta hold on! I'll keep, holdin on My word is bond, I gotta be strong I'll keep, holdin' on!! And keep holdin' on, yeah Ya see life's gettin rough but I gotta hold on All these little suckers want me alone Yeah, yeah, yeah!

You know, sweatin', one for some, is not my style I'm the type to wine and dine and the candlelight Cause just one night could be just so right Your first riff is that I'm never home And you're, sick and tired of bein' alone But baby, I got work to do And ain't no-one gonna stop me from bein' Pu' I buy you rings and things and all that good stuff But you still beefin' that that is not enough Let's sit down and discuss it Baby bust it (Hey, hey) You check my beeper when I'm still sleepin' When I get out of cars, you're out your window peepin' I think the best thing for you and me Is just to play like John Lennon and let it be You tried to do me [Chorus] You tried to do me, you tried to do me (Yeah, but you see baby) You tried to do me, but I am not the one (I am not the one) You tried to do me, you tried to do me (You tried to do me, yeah) You tried to do me, but I am not the one (Ay, bust it) [Verse 2: Grand Puba Maxwell] I would sing the song called, "Just Be My Lady" But you're the type of girl who likes to act real shady And rain on the brain like a hurricane Throw rhythm on a dame, 'cause I know the game You see, I'm just a rapper and nothing's free so... "Why are you watchin' me?" Well honey, can I get some privacy? You say "cool," then you try to flip But you forgot to put the Gucci bag upon your hip You knew me, you blew me, others would pursue me The question that I ask is why you, tryin' to do me? Make like a ship and just float on (float on) I'm not the type of brother that you can just gig on I know the time honey, there it is plain to see You're tryin' to do me [Hook] You tried to do me, you tried to do me (You tried to do me) (Yeah, but you see baby) You tried to do me, but I am not the one (I am not the one) You tried to do me, you tried to do me (I ain't havin' it) You tried to do me, but I am not the one (Yeah) [Interlude] "Ugh, ugh, ugh, ugh" "Ugh, ugh, ugh, ugh" Now see, baby I don't know why you tryin' to flip and all of that Cause I'm out here tryin' to do my thing and get these papes in today's society You know what I'm sayin'? I'm tryin' to make things a little better But if you wanna make matters worse, let me say this first There's no need for you to try to do me [Chorus] You tried to do me, you tried to do me (You tried to do me, honey) (You tried to do me, babe) You tried to do me, but I am not the one (But you see, I am not the one) You tried to do me, you tried to do me (You tried to do me) (Yeah) You tried to do me, but I am not the one (And now check it, I'ma end it like this) [Verse 3: Grand Puba Maxwell] Good times come, honey, good times go I think this is somethin' that you really oughta know The name of the game is to maintain Cause when you lose someone you love, then you feel pain It's up to you to decide if the love was worth losin' To me you're not the everyday, Tina, Tammy, Susan Why can't you, understand? Instead of tryin' to run the flim-flam on the Grand Baby, do whatever is clever Cause we can make this last forever and ever (Make it last forever, oh yeah) With joys, there's pain But don't you worry about the Puba Maxwell, cause I can stand the rain Shoo-be-doo, this is what you oughta do Think of all the things that I just told you Remember all the times when I used to hold you and say We can last through eternity But don't ever try to do me [Outro] "Ugh, ugh, ugh, ugh" "Ugh, ugh, ugh, ugh" "Ugh, ugh, ugh, ugh" "Ugh, ugh, ugh, ugh" #TommyBoyRecords #BrandNubian #HipHop

Brand Nubian - Ragtime Lyrics

[Lyrics Brand Nubian - Ragtime] Ayyo, check this out Brand Nubian gettin' ready to swing this ep' We got the Grand Puba, we got Derek X on the flex We got, Lord Jamar, we got Alamo with the A, Ron Stud! And my man Ep Rock X, kick the flavor for me on this one 'Cause we gettin' ready to be out of here in a, sec Wild, New York raw as my voice box soars I'll Open your pores 'cause it's one of my chores Kickin' beats to boggle rhythms, cuttin' rhymes to a schism People often wonder and ask Is I'm the best? Surely you jest, I'm not down with the rest In fact they failed the test It's my vernacular that's simply spectacular My bite is in your neck it's the effect, of Dracula Man on a mission, go to school with low tuition Can't even keep account, of the G's I be kissin' But oh I beg your pardon, the race, is startin' The criminals is there and I'm the hardest of the hard And it's a feet for you to meet me on any given day The adjective amazing, spelled with an 'A' And a 'G' on the end, by usin, my pen Set forth on a journey for the, perfect blend Rhymin was a fad in the days of my dad Now MC's is makin' G's and goin' for bad The X in my name makes it, all official Am I the king? Well that's the so-called issue Rollin off the tongue was the fresh one-liner And CB talker was the zero one-niner Took a slight drop from the tip of the top Now I'm out for mines and I'm goin to clock What's mine on the line on a rhyme I will dine Never ate the pig can't deal with the swine Keep on, yes my word is bond Speakin' that knowledge like Farrakhan 'Cause it's ragtime! Ah yeah it's ragged, let's do it! Aight now we got Lord J Lord J, yo c'mon now Kick, the flavor, to this Drop it like this (I'mma swing it like this) I like to drop bass, 'cause when it hits, I bounce 'em I do this with my seven and my one half ounces of brain Which I contain, to manifest thought The record is bought so I figure I ought to elaborate (Might as well) As minds in turn collaborate I speak the facts black, I don't exaggerate I just get to the bare essential Demandin' that I talk, of my credentials, 'cause yo I never slept, my mind was in the right place Now let's take our steps and retrace Back to a time, when black was defined As original, God-like, Supreme Divine Refined is my mind that's why I'm buildin' There was a void in New York but now it's filled in By the Lord J, don't forget the A-M-A To the R, now say I'm a star (You a star, J) Well you can be one too Now here's all you got to do (Whatcha gotta do?) You got to know knowledge of self's the foundation Know wisdom's the way to let it outcome Understanding is the manifestation And cultural freedom, the final turnout, 'cause it's ragtime That's definitely ragtime Now let me rag mine, let me rag mine at this time Ayyo, bust it (Here I go here I go here I go) As I, stand as a Pharaoh and read up on Eliza Trick ends on my friends, 'cause Puba's not a miser Last longer than a Duracell, or a Energizer I got a little older but a whole lot wiser When it comes to shootin' shots I'm a damn good shooter MC Grand Puba should be worshiped like a Buddha I boogies to the rhythm, kicks all the flavortism Damn I gets busy, though makin' rhyme I gets bizm Always help another meaning sister or a brother Just a little tip I picked up, from my mother Smooth as Ali Baba once I week I see the barber So honey pucker up 'cause I'm a damn good slobber Mr. Exquisite, dressed in silk, Bally's made of lizard So honey, what is it? (What is it?) I rock a rhyme at a wedding, next tour I'm probably heading You want to beat like this? Check the stack of Otis Redding I'm hurtin' like a blister, confusin' like Twister Not a only child, four brothers and one sister Not a rinky-dinky never snackin' on a Twinkie When it comes to flexin' I can bend like a Slinkie So here comes the champ, to civilize a tramp When brothers try to play me, that's when the Pub' gets amped So smile here comes the picture, click! A humble type brother so don't play me as a vic' I can relate to the Good Times, the Cosby's on the sometimes Granoble's on a Sunday then it's back at work on Monday Take my gear to the cleaners, buy pants or a Beamer Then I'm out, bangin' crackheads, I can do without (Definitely, why not Puba? Why why why?) 'Cause it's ragtime

Brand Nubian - Hold On
 
04:03
Album - Everything Is Everything Label - Elektra Released - 1994 Produce - Lord Jamar Brand Nubian is an American hip hop group from New Rochelle, New York, consisting of three MC's: Grand Puba (born Maxwell Dixon, on March 4, 1966), Sadat X (formerly Derek X, born Derek Murphy, on December 29, 1968) and Lord Jamar (born Lorenzo Dechalus, on September 17, 1968), and two DJs: DJ Alamo and DJ Sincere. Its debut album, One for All is one of the most popular and acclaimed alternative hip hop albums of the 1990s, known for socially conscious and politically charged content inspired by the teachings of the Nation of Gods and Earths.[1] History 1989--1992 Brand Nubian formed in 1989 after Grand Puba's original group, Masters of Ceremony, split up. Its first single, "Brand Nubian," was released in 1989. Signed to Elektra Records by A&R man Dante Ross, its debut album, One For All, was released in 1990. Generally acclaimed, the album drew fire for militant Five-Percenter rhetoric on tracks such as "Drop the Bomb" and "Wake Up." The controversy helped sales, although the album was still not a great commercial success. To date, the album has sold 350,000 units. A version of the Fab Five Freddy-directed video of the single "Wake Up," featuring a Black man in white-face makeup, was also banned from MTV. On that channel and from official WEA sources, this image was replaced by a Baptist preacher. The singles "Slow Down," "All for One," and "Wake Up" all became hits on Billboard's Hot Rap Tracks chart in 1991. Shortly after its debut release, Sadat X and Lord Jamar began having problems with Grand Puba, which caused him to leave the group, along with DJ Alamo, to pursue a solo career. Lord Jamar and Sadat X enlisted DJ Sincere to join the group in 1992. The same year, Puba released his solo debut, Reel to Reel, which featured the hit single "360 Degrees (What Goes Around)". Later in 1992, the Puba-less Brand Nubian released a hit single of its own, "Punks Jump up to Get Beat Down". The track was met with controversy over blatant homophobic content, referencing the Sadat X line "I can freak, fly, flow, fuck up a faggot/I don't understand their ways; I ain't down with gays." Despite the controversy, the single charted on the Billboard Hot 100 at number 77. Later versions omitted the line and replaced it with different lyrics, including the version on the greatest hits compilation The Very Best of Brand Nubian. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brand_Nubian

I'm kinda blessed so I wrote this manifesto for life Co-signed by the others with a knife * Alamo cuts and scratches "Brand Nubian!" * On the real tip let's take a field trip from the ghetto You pick the time and we'll meet in the meadow To discuss racial issues and tension New York's a powder keg did I forget to mention? * Alamo cuts and scratches "New York, New York" * Now case in point y'all remember that Brooklyn Bridge joint When things got wild and wooly? Yeah that day the FEDS played the role of the bully "Up against the car!" "Yo I ain't even do nuttin man" "Aiyyo shut up or you get smacked!" "Yo why you pushin me why you hittin me man?" Now Huey Newton was slain and we all felt the pain Of Yusef Hawkins, and they was mad but we was squakin They tried to show a false compassion, yet at the rally They tried to bash in our brains Further adding to the bloodstains I was mad at this news and so was my brothers And I wanted to get violent but I'm a lover of black mothers And black mothers need sons Not children that's been killed by guns.. It's, just a-nother form of slavery, a modern day lynchin The others get the world, the black man feels the tension Inside, not out to hide, just provides us all the answer I will stop racial injustice if I get the chance to! * Alamo cuts and scratches "When the revolution comes" * Now, the Civilized man's main goal is to teach And I try to achieve this with verbal outreach In my community, and all outlaying counties Spread the message of good with my Now Rule mighty Step up to the right, dispense and be known Remember what I said is to teach your own At home first, and as we disperse I sparks your head like a cloudburst Ya don't stop, ya don't quit Derek X I'm guaranteed to be the ultimate (Brother Derek X) I kicks the flavor! So bust that I drop the stack from my almanac It's all truth so it's got to be a shown fact So keep on this is the dawn of the Capricorn Turtle A rhyme that I kick is stored daily in my journal Or my diary when speakin on the black man I gets fiery The record's in the record store, category's black war Best you ever saw and it comes in a three or a four pack In a month or two I'll be back To confer with you on both of my works In my contract, I get crazy perks from Elektra See me kick this rhyme and I covered the whole spectrum This is the final verse, grand finale in Crescendo Message substance of the X cannot be thrown out the window Unseen, lean two years past the teen Never use makeup got a natural sheen It's like that y'all let's have a ball I'm Derek X about six feet tall Yeah and as I stop this wreck for one sec I wanna give a shout to the Grand Puba Also to Clark Kent, Marley Marl ("I understand that time is running out") Pete Rock from the Vernon I wanna give a shout to Mike P in the Cherokee also in Tucson ("I understand that time is running out") Rich with the Cabriolet I wanna give a shout to all the Gods in Now Rule ("Understand that time is running out") Melachi, Sincere and my man True Born I wanna give a shout to Big Bob ("Time is running out") Scooby Real and the whole Mob from the Stallion Mark the Spark And I'm outta here * Alamo cuts "Running out" * #TommyBoyRecords #BrandNubian #HipHop

Arguin' days after days after days Well I can dig it See I done had some fly ones But they try to get just that, thought I'd like to chase the cat But I'm not a dog, God is who you're lookin' at Couldn'ta tooken that, bullcrap, you woulda caught a jack I told her, Yo the first thing is when the telephone rings It ain't really nuthin' but noise You want to flip and lose your poise? Now they quick to flip, but yo honey get a grip You gotta understand I'm a man with needs that needs fulfilling And if you ain't with it somebody else is willing You gotta love me, or leave me alone You gotta love me, or leave me alone You gotta love me or leave me alone I got this good thing girl, it's the righteous love Not that quick on the top, one shop hop I'll make your knees get wet in the places I'll pet I'll make you breathe, faster than you can believe Within your hole I'll use my control And the final burst, I'll hold Until it comes Back scratches added up in sums Didn't your momma teach you bout bonin' a man? Bent my dick so bad that I ran Now I'll, freak of the week, or ride the quest of a yard girl's hips Your pussy can't see these lips I keep my tongue in my mouth 'cause I can't see down South Vulgar? Maybe, obscene with the purpose Sayin, I'ma do my own thing, bein I'm my own King And it's up to you to follow So on your Wisdom I'll shine my light Bring forth the seed, created in the night You gotta love me, or leave me alone You gotta love me or leave me alone The degree, love hella right, get it right Either all the above, or it ain't true love I ain't down for a honey who don't want to submit Always throwin' a fit, want to talk a lot of shit But love to get hit from behind Gettin' crazy joy from my Lazy-Boy that reclines Seems the only time we're not in a fight Is when I'm layin' the pipe You don't want me to bone another chick Quick to claim my name and my dick But when I tell you get off the swine and get refined You act like you're blind and you lost your damn mind See I'm not the kind to let a woman run it How my man Rick say it? 'I Shouldn't Have Done It' Is what I'd be saying if you was runnin' the show No hoe, there's no gold, the G-O-D know The time on the Sun and the Moon and the Stars Dance to the tune of Lord Jamar And if you're actin tone def it's your own mental death Huh, you gotta love me, or leave me alone You gotta love me, or leave me alone You gotta love me or leave me alone
